🍫 Fondant Brownies with Maple Sugar and Cashew Nuts, with Kidney Beans 🫘

By Marilyn

If you didn't already know, I'm a real “chocolate addict”. I've needed my daily dose of chocolate since…always! It goes without saying that brownies are a huge source of pleasure for me.

🌎 A Dessert Loved Around the World

Brownies are a classic American dessert and they are enjoyed in many countries around the world. There are many variations of recipes today, with additions and modifications according to local tastes and culinary traditions.

🕰 A Rich History

Brownies have been around since around the start of the 20th century. The exact origin of brownies is unclear, but it is widely believed that they were invented in the United States.

🫘 Healthy and Tasty Brownies

I like the idea of ​​introducing beans into a brownie recipe to add fiber, protein and minerals like iron, magnesium, zinc and potassium. I was looking for a brownie recipe that would include beans, maple sugar and cashews and I couldn't find one I liked online. So I decided to develop my own brownie recipe.

🔄 Substitutions and Variations

I love giving you options, product substitutions in a recipe. You'll find several in this one, including vegan ingredients. Personally, I like the mix of whole wheat and all-purpose flour, but you can choose one or the other, or use other flours to your liking.

👦👧 A Perfect Snack for Kids

If your kids love chocolate, this is a nutritious and energizing snack! Simply omit the nuts and put them in the school lunch box.

Come on, good food! I wish you a...chocolate day 🍫🤎
